Hello Year 5!
This half term our topic is The Victorians!
Thank you for working so hard on your home learning. If you want to send me any pictures of your work, or you at work, please send them to my email address and I'll add them to the slideshow below, once a week. There's no pressure at all to do this so don't worry if you don't fancy sending me pictures.
I would like everyone to have a go each day at the work in the packs. If you are struggling, please don't panic! There will be some questions that you find tricky - just spend five minutes on them, do your best and move on.
Most importantly, take time to enjoy other activities at home! Go for a walk with your Mum or Dad, help your parent/s in the garden, do some baking with your parent/s, keep a diary each day, read each day, do some drawing or colouring.
Mrs Longhurst will give you some RE and Music to work on.
Take care and see you soon,
Mrs Bradford, Mrs Fairbanks, Mrs Van-Duivenvoorde, Mrs Fenton, Mrs Marsden.
